THE TOP LIFE COACHES

A life coach is a person who helps you find an answer to the question: “Who am I?”. Life coaches work with people who are not doing or being what they want to be, doing what they want to do, and/or having what they want to have. 

Life coaches help you find your life purpose and set goals for you to accomplish that purpose. Life coaches also help you get back on track when your life takes a detour, such as a divorce, illness, job loss, or other trauma. Life coaches work with a lot of people who are stuck, do not know who they are, and do not know what they want.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I believe that everyone is here for a reason and the ultimate reason is to make this world a better place to live and I believe the best way is to live out your uniqueness. My uniqueness is that I have the ability to bring to awareness a client’s unconscious patterns and mental attitudes by holistically approaching their body, mind, and spirit to address any problem. By doing so, it helps clients to achieve more clarity in the present state and makes it easier for him/her to decide on the next step. Using my background in engineering and Human Needs Psychology I am able to help clients craft out small simple steps towards their desired results. 

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I believe I have continuously challenged my mental models and allowed my curiosity to guide me. Allowing my curiosity to guide me has led me to reach the depth in understanding my clients. It continuously drove me to improve myself by creating new models and frameworks to create faster and more impactful transformations in my clients’ life.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I love working with both individuals and organisations to support their employees manage transitions and become the best version of themselves, feel ready to take charge and create alignment around what really matters.

One very important thing I learned during my own personal integration
process in my transitions is that personal branding and self-confidence are crucial for a successful transition. Even though you might be fully qualified for the job and
your CV has all the requirements, the way you present yourself can make or break your hiring process. As a highly sought-after career and cultural integration coach, it is my mission to support expats and professionals in their life transitions, find their confidence, present themselves in a way that will get them more job interviews and above all else, find your sense of home in your host country.

In the process of my own integration, I built upon my expertise in intercultural education in global organizations. I authored two books exploring cultural diversity in HR practices of recruitment, selection, training, and development. I also deeply explored the role of intercultural education for expats on international assignments.

My expertise and training in intercultural communications, diversity, inclusion,

and personal agility system can empower your organization with the ability to recognize and create alignments in areas that will optimize employee performance and enable organizations and individuals to create alignment around what really matters.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing is my passion and focus on continuous development, learning and growing, getting inspired by the people I met, my mentors, the people I served whose story enabled me to inspire other to do more of what makes them happy, as well as to build my expertise and cultivate inner talent to enhance people’s well-being and performance.

My work is based on 27 years of training and practice in meditation and personal development.

It is my greatest honor to walk the path of awakening with others.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

As a life coach, I work with an individual’s Self-Awareness. My signature coaching program involves identifying core values and assessing an individual’s emotional intelligence.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I’ve spent most of my life in the realm of human performance – as a competitive kayaker, as an avid outdoor enthusiast, and as an educator, always interested in what makes people tick – inside and out. As a coach, I use the tools of the Co-Active model, and the Neuroscience of Coaching to empower busy, driven professionals about purpose, productivity and the pursuit of better, coaching their whole lives, including health.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

My success as a coach has always hinged on my ability to meet people where they are, without judgement or attachment, and help them uncover what’s already there. I’ve always been inspired by the power of the human spirit, and I have a knack for helping people strengthen theirs.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

Deriving from some of the most transformative coaching principles, practices, and techniques, I have put together an initiative called the ‘Self Accessment Initiative’ to partner in the journey of the wonderful souls that get connected with me. The initiative is a heartfelt effort to empower the people I work with to mindfully and deeply engage with their personal reality and what comes to the surface from deep within so that they become ready to initiate transformational experiences in their lives. It also helps my clients to access the wisdom of their inner self, source, and core values, and establish a seamless synchronicity between their ‘being’ and ‘doing’.

What, according to you, has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I believe that if the sanctity of the coaching practice is honored during the sessions, it helps both the coach and the coachee to enter into a safe space where they show up as their most authentic self and are able to embrace vulnerability, and create something purposeful in their time together. It is having received the necessary mentorship and support that helps me facilitate and create a safe space for my clients that I consider to be the single most important thing that has contributed to my success as a coach. And all this has come true for me because I consider myself a Coachee of life first before calling myself a life coach.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I work with my clients as a person, not the label of Business Owner, CEO or whatever it is they do. Life is personal and business. My coaching is based around the principles of Beliefs, Emotions/Mindset & Habits. I work intuitively using a fusion of coaching, NLP, hypnotherapy & energy techniques in every session in conjunction with a framework created around the 3 principles above.

What, according to you, has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important factor that has contributed to my success is the ongoing development of my own skills, supported by several coaches, guides and mentors. The journey of learning never stops.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

As an introvert, I am passionate about supporting introverted individuals to be empowered introverts, appreciating introversion as a strength and not an area of weakness. I coach my clients to live authentically, connecting fully to their higher purpose in life. My River Life Coaching model brings my clients on a journey of self-discovery by realising their core values, assimilating these values with their purpose in life and addressing the obstacles in their “river of life”. I partner with my clients to introspect and also to find their authentic voice in this noisy world.

What, according to you, has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing that has contributed to my success as a coach is my appreciation that it is a journey of self-discovery and development – to be fully present and enjoy each coaching experience and not get distracted with comparison, self-doubt or caught up by my inner saboteurs. It’s to realise that I am the best coach that I can be in this present moment and while I’m still growing, I continue to validate myself as I am today.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I see resilience as an antidote for managing the abundance of unexpected change that occurs in mid to later life.  I’m passionate about making resilience tangible and learnable for overcoming challenges of all kinds.  I use simple, immediately usable practices so clients come away with relief, noticeable results, and healthy mindset shifts.  I give homework.  Practice is key to developing effective new habits and letting go of old ones.  Personal sharing is paramount.  I bring deep sensitivity and resourcefulness to my groups, sharing results in my life from the practices I teach, creating strong camaraderie, safety, and feelings of community.

What, according to you, has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The most important thing contributing to my success as a coach is personal experience with unexpected mid-life change, and my resulting passion to help others.  This inspired me to create three skill-building workshop series for developing resilience: A Shot of Resilience, An Extra Dose of Resilience, and Always Resilient.  Delivered virtually, each 6-part series draws from Positive Psychology, positive/negative energy, and mindset strategies.   My curriculum creates a highly interactive dynamic with laughter, tears, and fun as skills are practiced.  Feedback consistently confirms that strong connections, positive relationships, and resilience can be developed virtually, essential in today’s uncertain hybrid world.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

Sometimes we can get so caught up in what is going wrong in our lives that we don’t even notice what is working. I help my clients shift their perspectives so that they stop playing the victim and take back control of their life, career, and destiny. After all, ultimately it’s all up to us and the stories we are telling ourselves – we might as well tell ourselves a story that makes everything better, and not worse, right?

What, according to you, has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

Many times the world insists that we need to be rational. Sometimes that is good advice, but often it’s not, especially if it keeps us in a place of safety but ultimately stuck. When I went the “irrational” route and invested in myself and my business despite not knowing if any of it would pay off, all sorts of doors opened up that hadn’t been there before. Sometimes we just need to give ourselves that permission to take the risk. And even when it doesn’t work out the way we planned, it often leads to opportunities we couldn’t have imagined.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

Whenever I work with a new client I explain that coaching is all about partnership – we are working on a joint project which is their personal success and development. I tell them that I never let my clients ‘short change’ themselves. I’m totally committed to helping them discover the very best in themselves and that means being completely honest in the feedback I give them. I’m never afraid to challenge my clients – but I use a lot of humour, warmth and empathy– so I’m able to ask powerful questions without damaging the relationship we have built together. 

What, according to you, has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

Clients tell me that I work magic – because I’m able to help them take very difficult situations and turn them round so they can see new perspectives and  possibilities for change. I believe much of this comes from my in-depth understanding of human relationships and the importance of truly effective communications – and my love for the individuality and resilience of the human spirit. I’m able to help clients prepare for very difficult conversations, find new ways to express themselves, feel confident in preventing and handling conflicts, and to achieve the outcomes they need and desire.
